My favorite place to be in the world is at home in the woods. Always searching for something beautiful that I can pick up and put in my pocket- a rock, a twisted twig, flower, acorn, whatever. I feel safe and at home in the woods-any season. I hope that my store will be an extension of that same feeling-I hope that The Village Forager will be a place to take a deep breath of fresh air, a space filled with unique things to bring a smile to your face. To "forage" means to hunt, search, rummage, or scavenge for something- I think of birds in the woods always searching for food or pieces of straw and twigs to build their nests. I feel like The Village Forager will be a place to search for that special thing you might need to complete a wish list, a last minute birthday present, or something neat for you to put in your pocket and hold dear. All of my herbs and spices are certified organic, as well as the herbal teas and herb starts in the greenhouse. I will offer soy and beeswax candles with cotton wicks and handmade bath and body products that have a very short ingredient list! We hope to be working on the inside of The Village Forager in the next couple of weeks, so not much longer! I'm so excited to be able to share this with everyone.
